    Let's hope it has fully forged internals! Boost the hell out of it and pick one up with AWD.

    Wow... crank up the boost for 500+ should be easy. I hope a tuner is ready to pounce on this. $ in the bank. Coming from Audis with 4 cyl turbo and V6 twin turbos... the market is endless for software, exhausts, bigger turbos, manifolds, FMICs, etc.

    Am not familiar with modding a turbo other than up pipe and down pipe stuff plus the obvious, larger turbo.

    How much can just software do? Can that alone raise the maximum boost (by controlling the wastegate valve or something?)? Or, would getting something approaching 500 hp require a different turbo and lots of pipe work?

    I was kinda disappointed too, being this makes our cars less significant.

    I will say though that my brother (loves boosted cars) is always impressed how my car doesn't need to spool up... it just goes like hell.

    My '01 Audi A4 1.8 Turbo was 170 hp (factory at 10psi boost), which was the same 1.8T motor in general that is 150 hp at 7 psi boost... with a chip, it was 210 hp. 40/170 is ~25% increase for $500. S4 is a 250 hp twin turbo V6 at 250 going to 310-320 hp range... again, ~25% gain.

    My A4 1.8T with a GT28R turbo on race gas was 250-260+ all wheel drive to the wheels making 330+ crank. Almost double than stock at 170 and more than double if you count '97-'00 @ 7psi before '01 model. Never built the motor and tons of miles on it with lots of track days. I hope GM builds them as strong. And a tuner jumps on this.

    The GMPP tune from the dealer for the Sky RL bumps it from 260/260 to 290/340. I'm ordering a popular tune for mine that bumps it up to around 320/380, with no other mods.

    Back in the 80's I bought a 1988 Mustang GT 5.0 V8 new which had 225hp. Mini Van's today put out more HP.
